Tiny Florals Patchwork Quilt
Last weekend I made a sweet little patchwork quilt for a Baby Shower and it was everything I hoped it would be! In fact, I love it so much that I am already planning to make another in a larger size!
This quilt looks a little bit scrappier than it is. I started with 16 small scale floral prints and cut three 2.5" x 21" strips from each of the 16 prints. I then separated them into four stacks of four prints.
I made three sets of the same four-strip set, but just alternated the order of the prints in the different sets to add some variety. I cut four 2.5" x 8.5" strips from each of the sewn sets and then sewed them all back together to make twelve 8.5" blocks.
A little polka dot sashing was in order with my favorite, works-with-everything, low volume dot. I used 2.5" wide strips between blocks and then a 3" border around the outer edges.
I did some free motion quilting and used a long hoarded floral for the backing that seemed to perfect. I machined the binding on for a quick finish and was so happy it was well-received.

I love the design of this quilt so much that I’m going to redo the width and length to fit a twin size bed for my two grandsons. I will get some boy material at Joanne’s and something boy for back. I’ll send pics when they are done. Wish me luck everyone.
This quilt is beautiful! If you had a kit for the baby shower size, I would buy it immediately :)
Did you use the black and white dot for the 3" border? SOOOO cute!!
Love this quilt!!! It looks so simple, yet the colors are placed perfectly. Thank you for sharing!!!
